“Like” My Recipes: Kikkoman Master Sauce Contest


After some persuasion from my Facebook crew, I decided to go ahead and enter my third recipe contest. Am I mad? All of this promoting and sharing and liking and sharing and all of this “PLEASE VOTE FOR ME!” It’s craziness! The ironic thing about it all is that I DETEST popular voting of anything. I understand that online contests are used to promote websites and what-not, but shouldn’t entrants really be judged on talent? Oh, anyway.

I’ve never been one to join recipe competitions, until recently. My very first contest was just last month…and I won…a trip to Italy. Ha ha…I know, right? Soon after, I happened upon another contest. It was sponsored by the Pritikin Resort in Miami, FL. Since I pretty much knew nothing about the Pritikin Diet (except for the mere fact that Kirk Cameron adopted the diet way back in the day and everyone thought it was so weird that he wouldn’t drink soda), I took this competition on as more of a learning experience. Guess what? I won…an all expense paid trip for two to the Pritikin Luxury Resort in Miami, Florida.

Who would have thought that promoting oneself in competitions would take so much out of a person? I’m so relieved that all of that is over. However…I was approached by another PR company about a new contest. To be honest, I wasn’t sure I wanted to take on another adventure. So, I turned to my Facebook friends. I wanted to know if I was becoming that annoying “vote for me” person. I never tried to be. I did my best to thank everyone, keep them in the loop and reciprocate voting for their own contests. Some of the prizes (and experiences) were just too good to pass up when I knew I had a good shot at winning. Many people assured me that I was not annoying and that I should keep going as I was on a roll. Okay. Twist my arm. Full speed ahead!

On to the contest…Kikkoman is sponsoring a Master Sauce contest on Facebook. There are four categories: Marinades, BBQ Sauce, Stir-fry Sauce and Salad Dressings. I have submitted a BBQ recipe called Tonkatsu Sauce (Japonese BBQ) and a marinade, Sesame Teriyaki Marinade. The final “Master Sauce” winner will be chosen by a panel of judges looking at certain criteria. The winner will receive $1000 plus other prizes. Winners will also be chosen as runners up and category winners. Part of the scoring depends on recipe “likes”, which is where you come in. There’s no sharing…all you have to do is click the photo and “like” my recipes (just click the little heart.) That’s it! I appreciate your time and support, more than you know.

    Your team could have possession of the ball but you never know when that possession will be lost
    and your team must transition to defense. You’re committing yourself to being ready,
    mentally and physically, to participate as a footballer in the
    football development academy. We do not want to run into a challenge as time
    goes on where the youngsters simply want to take a seat home as well as take
    in junk food as well as sit on right now there grows.
    Football is definitely a sport that requires a combination of skills and athletic ability.
